Booked our stay on Bring Fido app. It was fantastic hotel for our overnight visit with our dog. The room was clean, roomy, comfortable and there were plenty of areas to walk our dog. The front desk staff was friendly and professional.

This property is older but very well maintained. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and clean. We had a good, full breakfast. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Excellent value. Adjacent small airport was no problem.

A very nice hotel in Scottsdale; for us a nice respite when in the city for care at Mayo Clinic (Phoenix location only about 15+ minute drive). We have enjoyed the special rate when staying as Mayo patients. The suite arrangement of the rooms gives us both the bedroom and the front sitting area if one needs a quiet area for resting/recovering. We like having our dog along with us on trips and she's been welcome.

It was late and our first motel didn’t meet our standards, so at close to midnight I was searching the internet for a motel that was safe and pet friendly. The Best Western Thunderbird was exactly what we were looking for. I was impressed from the first phone call at 11:30 pm, to the quality of the room, to the wonderful breakfast, to the incredible staff. We will stay here again.

We were pleased that this hotel, while not close to downtown attractions, was easy to get to and in a great part of town. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was outstanding, providing different hot selections each of the three days we were there. The room was clean and comfortable for the most part. In a world where help is hard to get, I do wish this hotel could find a way to deliver fresh towels each day and empty garbage. Environmentally speaking, washing of bed linens is not necessary, but fresh towels seem to be one of the things that make us, who don't often stay in hotels, feel pampered. More importantly, in a tech-obsessed world, this hotel needs charging stations in the rooms. The electrical outlets on the the lamp did not work at all, necessitating having to unplug the alarm clock and strain to plug a medical device into the wall. As for phone and iPad charging, those items were left on the floor near wall outlets to be charged. This is not convenient, nor is it safe for have devices on the floor where they can be kicked about. Finally, I warn any guests who are larger than tiny people. The bathroom is minuscule. I had a hard time getting into it to to close the door without stubbing my toe. Overall, however, this was a great experience.

I am INCENSED that a week later I am still suffering the pain of injury sustained as a result of unsafe conditions in this hotel and haven't received a call OR apology from hotel management! I stepped into a VERY slippery tub with the shower going. The tub had no treads or padding, causing me to violently bang my shin into the side of the tub! I then had to stand & walk in a wedding for hours in excruciating pain. When I reported to the front desk, I was told there was NO Manager on Duty and NO Incident Report Log! The agent then presented me with a packaged bath mat. "Why was I not offered this at check-in? Why aren't they placed in every room?" I asked. "Some people don't like them" the agent responded. The purchase of such an item proves the hotel is aware of the issue but has chosen to take NO action to proactively protect the safety and welfare of their guests. This is "intentional tort" and "willful endangerment" for which they should be stripped of their franchise license before they cause further liability to the Best Western brand; or their neglect leads to more serious injury or death of a guest. (Two other associates also reported the same issue, but luckily didn't get hurt like I did.) I have been in the hospitality industry for almost 40 yrs and have opened 4 Diamond hotels. I know the protocols and standards. They are not being followed by this hotel.

We stayed here the last two nights of our family Arizona visit. Everyone was very professional and friendly. The service was outstanding. Breakfast was very good. Steve who was in charge of the dining area was especially friendly and made sure that everyone felt welcome and had everything they needed.

I made a teaser action at the Thunderbird, and then showed up a week earlier than expected yet they honored the reservation and the price! I mistakenly booked the wrong date and when I called to arrange for early check in they told me that I didn’t have a reservation for that night but was scheduled for next Sunday. They modified the reservation, helped me to arrange for a third party refund, and got me early check in! That is good customer service!
